Mum-of-two pleads for help to save her daughter’s first birthday cake.

The mum shared a photo of the monkey cake she had made locally to social media, with the caption: ‘Please be kind’.

‘I had this monkey made for my daughter’s cake for her first birthday,’ she wrote.

‘It looks like her monkey except people keep telling me how rude he looks in various ways.’

‘I’ve been told he looks like a stoned monkey with his willy out!,’ she added.

The image she has shared shows a blue monkey sitting atop a pink base holding a rather oddly shaped number one that’s been decorated with blue flowers, shares Daily Mail.

‘I can deal with friends and family over Facebook being rude but not with family when I present the cake!,’ she said.

‘Tonight is dinner and I have to get dinner sorted today too with two under three running around so I’m short on time!

‘Is there anything I can do to save it?,’ she asked mothers on a Facebook group.

One person commented ” Tell “everyone” to get their head out of the gutter, a one-year-old isn’t going to notice anything but a cute monkey.”

Have to agree with that! I can’t see why people would have to be so rude about a little ones cake.

Have you had any disastrous birthday cakes? We would love to see them!

  • I’m not sure I saw how it looked rude. Get your minds out of the gutter!


  • I agree. Why do we have to go there? Let’s not put this on a cute cake for a 1 year old’s birthday.


  • Omg some people have such dirty minds these days. Maybe she should of changed the colour of the number 1 to like a brown colour or something, otherwise it’s so cute.


  • I can’t believe people can be so nasty about a child’s birthday cake. The only thing I can think of which might stop people from saying such things is maybe put a small present on the monkeys lap. But honestly I don’t think the children would see anything wrong with this, they’d just see the adorable monkey and probably want the same for their birthday. Get your mind out of the gutter people.


  • There are so many people out there with sick minds. They look at an image and want to find something dirty about it. There is nothing wrong with that cake and nothing rude or dirty about it either. To those people out there with filth on their brains, go and wash your mind out with a high-grade cleaner. Those who have made something dirty of this need to wake up to themselves. I hope your daughter enjoys her beautiful cake. Happy Birthday little one.


  • if a woman thinks that whats a penis looks like, i think she is in for a shock. Does not look rude at all, ok so the number one should of been made better,the monkey looks good.


  • how did they get that!! It is a cute little monkey!


  • I dont think it looks rude…
    Just a blue monkey for a kids one year birthday


  • I wonder how she fixed this?! It’s a bit funny I think. And I don’t think it looks too much like a willy ????


  • just take the pole bit out and then it is just a monkey.


  • I initially thought it depicted a monkey getting ready to climb up a tree trunk.
    Yes, maybe pole dancing if you use your imagination.
    Certainly nothing sinister.


  • It’s a great cake. Some people have their mind in the gutter all the time


  • It is kind of funny! She did a good job but people always find a problem.


  • So insensitive of them to be making comments like that at a time where she’s clearly trying to get everything sorted. To be honest I was searching to picture to see how this could possibly be offensive or X rated and couldn’t find anything.


  • Really only adults would look at it a rude way, my kid would think it’s a monkey holding onto a number 1
